Have you considered making the system an addon?
I made for my dreamcast

Yes, but ours will replace the optical block with a plug and play solution and emulate the original GD-ROM logic board for maximum compatibility. I have concept art as 3D renders which I made, but I won't show them until we have started working full time on DCIO.

Been awhile, any development updates?

Nope. Been focusing 100% on PSIO at the moment, but we haven't forgotten about DCIO of course. We will get back to working on it once we have finalised everything with PSIO.

Maybe this is a naive suggestion, but have you considered using a USB port? A USB port could be used to connect external hard drives (that usually come with external power supply, so it wouldn't stress the DC power supply) and it could also be used to connect other devices (USB flash drive, SD card to USB adapter, etc.).

Off-topic: any plans for something similar for the Saturn?

Edit: spell error

Yes, we've considered it, and yes, we have plans for the SEGA Saturn afterwards.

i know this sounds like a looooooooooooooooooong stretch. but, has the ps2 ,ever been a project idea??
i know of the open ps2 project, but i imagine that, a ps2 version of a odde would be rather interisting project. yes???
( note: this might be in the wrong forum?? not sure.

The PS2 has a few solutions already. Our aim is to target consoles which don't have any other digital options besides using optical disc media.

oh yes i know.. compatability is not capable of 100% but... i guess itll doo.

thankyou for your time.

Hi Matt, how about the Nintendo GameCube, there are a few options (WiiKey Fusion, WASP and Wode Jukebox) but these boards are near impossible to source. An ODE for the GC would be neat, especially if the optical drive could be kept as well (This is is possible with the mentioned solutions).

We'll see what we can do later on, but at the moment the other systems have priority :)

"The PS2 has a few solutions already. Our aim is to target consoles which don't have any other digital options besides using optical disc media."
Dreamcast, Saturn and 3DO already has their ODE solutions.
Dreamcast has GDEMU and USB-GDROM,
Saturn has Phoebe and Rhea,
3DO has USB Host Controller for FZ-1, FZ10 and one for GDO-101.
Btw, FM-Towns and Turbo Grafx/PC Engine both also has their ODE.

Still there is no accessible ODE for PS1, Sega CD, Philips CD-I, Amiga CD, NeoGeo CD and probably others, so ways to make new necessary stuff available.

GDEMU is impossible to get ahold of.

USB-GDROM has the absolute bare minimum of an interface and is, as the name suggests, USB-only.

The GDEMU was cloned by the Chinese unfortunately. Very disappointing because Deunan worked hard on that, but it's weird that it's impossible to get a hold of even if it's cloned. We'll focus on DCIO eventually though and make an absolutely amazing device for the Dreamcast, but we're just entirely focused on PSIO at the moment.
